JUNEAU -

A draft version of the gas line bill would raise the gas tax rate over what Gov. Sean Parnell proposed and change the role of the Alaska Gasline Development Corp., or AGDC.
    
A copy of the draft was provided at the Senate Finance meeting Monday. It wasn't discussed or adopted. Further work on the bill is planned.
    
The draft proposes a 13-percent tax, which when combined with royalty, would give the state a 25 percent share in the proposed major liquefied natural gas project.
    
An agreement signed by the state and companies called for a tax range between 7 and 13 percent.
    
Parnell proposed 10.5 percent rate in his version of SB138.
    
The draft also removed language proposing creation of a subsidiary of AGDC to carry Alaska's interest in liquefaction facilities. AGDC would have that duty.
